HIT Hydrostatic Inflatable PFD – Red/Black – Automatic/Manual
This front entry PFD automatically inflates when submerged in 4” or more water pressure, not when hit with rain, spray, or humidity, making it ideal for severe marine environments. The 500D Cordura® outer shell is durable, and the neoprene collar provides all-day comfort. The SecureZip stays closed during high winds but opens easily on inflation.
A convenient window lets you check the indicator status, and you can also use the manual handle or oral tube to inflate the PFD at any time. The water-resistant pocket secures and protects your essentials. A whistle, strobe light holder, and SOLAR reflective tape all ensure additional on-the-water safety.
*Upon inflation, it is essential to inspect and re-arm your PFD before next use.
